Semtech solving the logistics coverage challenge

Track & Trace has transformed logistics operations, eliminating unauthorized use of packages, loss of valuable assets and theft of high-value goods. Different steps in the supply chain involve unique challenges and requirements to successfully execute the logistics. Pierre Gelpi of Semtech explained how solutions based on LoRaWAN can solve the coverage challenge for different features:

Sub-gigahertz LoRaWAN implementations, however, aren't capable of solving every asset tracking problem. Multi-radio access technologies are more efficient. For example, LTE-M or other LPWANs can be used as the backhaul. In addition, the globally harmonized 2.4GHz LoRa® can be a great solution to solve challenges when operating on a global scale.
